Kavuma and the banger factory 

“Good music comes out of people playing together, knowing what they want to do and going for it. You have to sweat over it and bug it to death”
 

The Banger Factory is an organisation contingent upon bringing the people a good time. Born in the heart of Brixton, south London, the band has developed and nourished a truly unique and unmistakable sound. The Outfit lead by young lion Mark Kavuma (trumpet), explores original material, gets people moving and features some of the most gifted, engaging and masterful musicians on the scene today.
